Preparation for IMATS London
I’ve attended the three-day beauty-packed event since training to be a make-up artist and I’ve yet to be disappointed, one of the most exciting things for me and has always been a dream is to work at IMATS and to have the chance to demonstrate my make-up skills there. So this year at IMATS it’s very important year for me where I finally have the chance to meet and greet my followers and to demonstrate two of my popular make-up looks I have recently created- Snow Queen of Sweets and Pop Art Inspired Make-up on the Saturday and Sunday on the CrownbrushUK stand using my favourite Crownbrushes to create these looks of course! I have been spending the last few weeks preparing the looks for my demonstration and finally I am ready! (I think) I am so looking forward to seeing so many amazing talented make-up artists there as well as shopping at some of my favourite brands. I have listed below some brands/products to look out for this weekend:
Crown Brush U.K.
By far the biggest and most packed out stand at IMATS for sure! You can come and see me demonstrate make-up looks Saturday and Sunday on the stand you where you will also have the chance to see our online store right in front of your eyes. Over 50,000 brushes have been packed up to be precise for IMATS! My all-time favourite brush set from Crownbrush is the 613 HD 7 Piece set! I mean if you want flawless make-up application this is you’re to go to palette. I will be using it all weekend!
Bobbi Brown Pro
A chance to become a Bobbi Brown pro and discuss this with the team about this at IMATS. Bobbi Brown Cosmetics like other cosmetics brands such as M·A·C (M·A·C Pro Membership) and Make Up For Ever (Backstage Card) produce a pro line of products that cater towards industry make-up artists, this brand started Bobbi Brown Pro Membership Program in 2011.
It’s also a chance to check out the Bobbi Brown Pro Make-up Artist Palettes, such as the BBU Palette for the Face (Concealers, Correctors & Foundations) and Lips palette! Both over £100 but will last you forever!
Charles Fox – Kryolan
Charles Fox shop is still not available to order online, therefore you always need to order over the phone or take a trip to Charles Fox in Covent Garden. Also finding all the full Kryolan range can be difficult to buy and see, so a chance to go to this store at IMATS is bliss! Most of my make-up kit consists of Kryolan products. In fact I am lost without my Shimmering Vision palette from Kryolan and use it on all my make-up jobs so it’s worth investing money into that palette if you are not sure what to buy there.
Eye Kandy Cosmetics
I recently blogged about this brand. Eye Kandy is a brand new company that sells glitter and mineral cosmetics, and one thing that got me excited was their liquid adhesive base, ‘Liquid Sugar’. I love it! So if you get chance pop along to the stand to purchase a bottle. The Liquid glitter is designed to hold glitter, mineral and loose powders on all day and giving the illusion of a second skin glitter effect. They have over 85 glitter and mineral shadows in the range.
I don’t know any make-up artists that doesn’t know about Face Lace! The quirky ready-to-wear make-up designs are a MUA-on-the-go’s beauty dream, with fifteen intricate designs that can be applied in under a minute and are re-usable. If you consider yourself an adventurous beauty addict that is seeking the next exciting fashion thrill, then you are sharing the vision of founder, make-up artist Phyllis Cohen. You wait till you see all her designs. You will want them all!
Love Make Up
UK official stockists of Makeup Atelier Paris, Embryolisse, OCC Makeup Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Everyday Minerals, Kett Cosmetics, Japonesque, NYX cosmetics and more. The main reason I am saying to check out this brand is because they are selling Lime Crime make-up this weekend! One of my top 10 brands I love in my kit. If they have the Velvetines I would buy loads! Red velvet is my go-to red lipstick and would be lost without it. By the way this stuff is gold dust so probably sell out by Saturday morning.
Other Brands you must go check out I love to use…
*NYX Cosmetics UK
This Saturday I will be doing my Pop Art Demonstration 9-4pm. and Sunday My Snow Queen of Sweets Demonstration 10-3pm.
I can’t wait to meet you all!
